uberAgent for Splunk can be licensed per user or per device. A per user model is attractive if end users often access multiple devices simultaneously (e.g. a physical PC, XenApp servers and virtual desktops). A per device model makes more sense where users share devices or where XenApp/RDS is used exclusively.
In this model uberAgent is licensed per named user. A user is defined as an Active Directory account logged on either interactively or over the network on a monitored endpoint (a machine with uberAgent on it). Licenses can be transferred between users, but only after a 30-day period in which a license has not been used.
In this model uberAgent is licensed per named computer. A computer is a machine, either physical or virtual, running uberAgent. Licenses can be transferred between devices, but only after a 30-day period in which a license has not been used.
Two license types are available:
- Client licenses: For computers running client versions of Windows (Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10)
- Server licenses: For computers running server versions of Windows (Server 2008 (R2) / Server 2012 (R2) / Server 2016)
Both types are available as perpetual, term and service provider licenses. The server license explicitly covers terminal servers and similar systems, too (e.g. Citrix XenApp, Microsoft RDS).
The easiest way to find the number of required user or device licenses is to consult uberAgent’s licensing status dashboard. It tells you exactly how many licenses you have and how many are required.
Please note that in addition to the uberAgent license a Splunk license is required for uberAgent to work. Our data volume calculator helps you size the Splunk license correctly.
We believe in the quality of our product. uberAgent is available for download as a fully functional version. Only restriction: without a valid license file a splash screen is displayed during each logon.
If you want to try uberAgent in production or conduct a PoC, you can remove the splash screen with a time-limited evaluation license we are happy to supply you with. Contact us for details.
